Since the Great Depression, researchers & statisticians have recognized the need for more extensive methods for measuring economic growth & sustainability. The recent recession renewed commitments to closing long-st&ing gaps in economic measurement, including those related to sustainability & well-being.
The latest in the NBER's influential Studies in Income & Wealth series, which has played a key role in the development of national account statistics in the United States & other nations, this volume explores collaborative solutions between academics, policy researchers, & official statisticians to some of today's most important economic measurement challenges. Contributors to this volume extend past research on the integration & extension of national accounts to establish an even more comprehensive underst&ing of the distribution of economic growth & its impact on well-being, including health, human capital, & the environment. The research contributions assess, among other topics, specific conceptual & empirical proposals for extending national accounts.
